King Frank and the Knights of the Eco Quest is new to Fun Kids!
It’s a 15-part eco-epic-comedy-radio-drama-poem from Soundscape Productions, supported by the Audio Content Fund.
It’s all set in a strange kingdom where the royal family and its subjects still live as if they were in the times of knights, quests, princesses and monsters but are becoming buried in their own piles of rubbish and waste.
Oh, and everybody in the kingdom speaks in rhyme!
Listen live on Fun Kids just after 4pm on Wednesday or catch up below!
